The Cyberpunk 2077 Grayson kill or spare choice in Chippin' In doesn't make a huge difference, as players can get to the same point either way without too much difficulty. After killing the Militech agents protecting Grayson and clearing the path to him, he'll try and get you to show mercy, claiming he has an access card that leads to a valuable prize. However, you can still get that prize either way - and we'll talk through the rather minor differences in what happens if you kill or spare Grayson in Cyberpunk 2077 below, and how you can still get the prize even if you shoot him.

The whole reason you've found Grayson is because you and Rogue are hunting down Adam Smasher. Unfortunately, you find Grayson instead, because Smasher has become the Arasaka's best pal now. You can exhaust all dialogue options with him – including learning where Johnny Silverhand's body is kept – but ultimately, you need to decide whether or not to shoot him.

If you spare Grayson, two things will happen. One of these is that he'll give you an old access card, and the second is that he'll tell you where to use it. Of course, this is great, because the reward you find through that access card is absolutely excellent, but the downside is that Grayson gets to live.

If you kill Grayson, he doesn't tell you where to use the old access card, but that ultimately doesn't matter because you're reading this guide. You can still find the loot if you know where to look. So you can appease Johnny and Rogue, shoot Grayson in his face, loot the old access card, then go and grab the loot.

To find it, climb the ladder to the platform on the left-hand side of the boat when you're looking past where Grayson is sat. Interacting with the control panel up here will lower a shipping container. Go down to it and use the access card to discover Johnny's Porsche 911 inside! It's yours to keep from here on and is easily the best looking car in the game. Another item to add to the list of Johnny's things you can own, on top of the pistol you picked up when initially interacting with him.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
